Hi there!

We're looking for someone who's eager to help our newest and fastest-growing partners, like Zoom, Calendly, and Airtable, succeed in launching and growing their Zapier integration. If you're excited about SaaS, APIs, and automation, then read on.

We know applying for and taking on a new a job at any company requires a leap of faith. We want you to feel comfortable and excited to apply at Zapier. To help share a bit more about life at Zapier here are a few resources in addition to the job description that can give you an inside look at what life is like at Zapier. Hopefully you'll take the leap of faith and apply.

About You

Meaningful relationships maximize your success. You prioritize creating, nurturing, and managing personal relationships over-relying on hastily-made contacts.

Long-term customer success tops short-term revenue. You pull in partners to activities that yield sustainable gains, not just one-time growth bumps.

Business development isn't just for BD professionals. You don't hesitate to make a cold call, deliver a presentation, or negotiate a win-win deal.

You strive to build partnerships that benefit customers and partners alike. You think about how a potential partnership will solve customers' problems with practical use cases.

API documentation is familiar territory. You're comfortable looking for and suggesting improvements to an integration based on reading through a tool's API docs.

Efficiency impacts outcomes. You consistently automate time-consuming processes to free up time for more meaningful work.

Strong writing is a skill you sharpen non-stop. From authoring a short, convincing email to an 800-word persuasive blog post, you don't stop honing your craft.

Action beats inactivity. When you're given a task, you take ownership and find an effective way to complete it, whether or not it requires dozens of Google searches.

Learning gives you satisfaction. You strive to improve your work and expand your industry and marketing knowledge.

Things You Might Do

Zapier is a startup, so you'll likely get experience on many different projects across the organization. Here's where you'll spend most of your time:

  • Establish and maintain meaningful relationships with dozens of Zapier integration partners at once
  • Persuade integration partners to tie their products to Zapier more closely
  • Gain understandings of partners' users and show them practical use cases for Zapier
  • Create marketing materials including launch blog posts and help documentation
  • As a part of Zapier's all-hands philosophy, help customers via support to ensure they have the best experience possible

About Zapier

For the past six years, Zapier has been helping people across the world automate the boring and tedious parts of their job. We do that by helping everyone connect the web applications they already use and love.

We believe that there are jobs a computer is best at doing and that there are jobs a human is best at doing. We want to empower businesses to create processes and systems that let computers do what they are best at doing and let humans do what they are best at doing.

We believe that with the right tools, you can have big impact with less hassle.

We believe in small teams. Small teams are fast and nimble. Small teams mean less bureaucracy and less management and more getting things done.

We believe that credentials don't say everything. Our CTO has a finance degree. Our CEO has an engineering degree. Our CPO has a mechanical engineering degree. What you love doing is way more important than the credentials you have.

We believe in a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment. All teammates at Zapier agree to a code of conduct.

How to Apply

We have a non-standard application process. To jump-start the process we ask a few questions we normally would ask at the start of an interview. This helps speed up the process and lets us get to know you a bit better right out of the gate. Please make sure to answer each question.

Complete this form with answers to the questions below. Make sure each answer stands alone as we review question-by-question instead of applicant-by-applicant.

  1. In a few sentences, tell us why you'd be a good fit for this role.

  2. Tell us about an initiative or campaign that you were involved with in the last few years that didn't perform as well as you would have liked. What was your role in the initiative and how did you evaluate its performance? What would you change if you were to run a similar campaign again?

  3. Write a sample email pitching David Rusenko, CEO of Weebly, on why his product should be integrated with Zapier.

  4. Tell us about a time you nurtured a business relationship from an opportunity to a mutual win.

  5. Our editorial team is writing a post on the Zapier blog about the best ways to use Slack, Evernote, Trello, and Zapier together. Please include—in a bulleted list—five use cases that you think they should highlight in their blog post.

  6. Optional: Share anonymously some demographic information about yourself to help us better track trends related to the backgrounds of candidates interested in working at Zapier in order for us to build a team that represents the users at Zapier and the broader world population.

Finally, wait for us to reply. We reply to everyone, even if we don't seem like a good fit.
